BetterZip 4.0 is here

Robert, 2017-05-24

I am happy to announce the release of BetterZip 4. There are many new features and improvements in this new version, but the main focus this time was on automating BetterZip and the integration with other productivity tools like Automator, Alfred, LaunchBar, DropZone, and Hazel.

So, what’s new?

I have made a page that lists all the exciting new things in BetterZip 4, but let me pick out a few that I like especially:

My personal favorite is the new Finder extension which puts all your presets in the Finder’s toolbar. Select some files in Finder, click the BetterZip button and choose one of your presets from the drop-down menu to create an archive with these files. Of course, you can also invoke any of your extraction presets on selected archives.

Drop Bar: Drop files on the new Drop Bar with drop areas for your favorite presets to instantly compress or extract them.

Navigation Bar: Drill into folders by double-clicking them like in Finder. A folder path is displayed above the archive contents which gives you easy navigation to all parent folders and allows you to drop items directly into them.

There is a lot more stuff which is I think is worth checking out.

Finally, I’d like to say a big THANKS! to everyone who helped with getting the new version to where it is now: Walter for the new toolbar icons, Koichi, Nicolas, Victor, and Zelu, Zhuyuan for their translation work and all the beta testers who participated.
